Health Systems in Transition (HiT) : Belgium Health system Review


The Health Systems in Transition (HiT) profiles, published by the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, are detailed descriptions of the health systems of each member country, and of political initiatives that are under way. The Belgian report was drafted in collaboration with the KCE and Sciensano.

In order to facilitate comparisons between countries, these reports are based on a common basic structure. They enable political decision-makers, researchers and other stakeholders to gain a detailed view of their own health system, but also to analyse the experiences of other countries with a view to drawing inspiration that could be relevant for their own situation. The objective is to support the drafting of initiatives and health system reforms on an ongoing basis.

The report is comprehensively updated approximately every five years. The major changes and reforms implemented in the meantime are published on an online platform, where the most recent complete version of the report is also available. A summary in French of the Belgian report is also available online on the Healthy Belgium website (towards a healthy Belgium).

A short presentation of the report is also available here.
